Audio Excerpt: 'Sweet Filthy Boy' by Christina Lauren

by Joyce Lamb)

The awesome author duo of Christina Lauren have a new release this month, Sweet Filthy Boy (audio book narrated by Shayna Thibodeaux), and HEA is thrilled to share an audio excerpt.

What Christina and Lauren have to say: "We have been so lucky with our narrators leading up to Sweet Filthy Boy, and we are huge fans of the audio editions of our books. This was the first audio book we've recorded from a single POV, and it was really important to us that the narrator capture not just Mia, but Ansel, since listeners wouldn't hear him directly, so to speak. Given that he's French, this was an additional challenge, but we are so pleased with the performance. Shayna nailed it. Her 'Ansel' is spot on!

Here's the blurb about Sweet Filthy Boy (courtesy of Gallery Books):

The New York Times bestselling author of Beautiful Bastard, Beautiful Stranger, and Beautiful Player starts a brand new story of friends, love, and lust with Book One of the Wild Seasons series.

One-night stands are supposed to be with someone convenient, or wickedly persuasive, or regrettable. They aren't supposed to be with someone like him.

But after a crazy Vegas weekend celebrating her college graduation—and terrified of the future path she knows is a cop-out—Mia Holland makes the wildest decision of her life: follow Ansel Guillaume—her sweet, filthy fling—to France for the summer and just…play.

When feelings begin to develop behind the provocative roles they take on, and their temporary masquerade adventures begin to feel real, Mia will have to decide if she belongs in the life she left because it was all wrong, or in the strange new one that seems worlds away.
